Egg Box Bespoke Logo Design

My lovely sister-in-law is quite the farmers wife and has her own sheep, chickens, ginormous vegetable garden - as well as helping my brother with his logging business. So what perfect easter present than a bespoke illustrated label for her free range eggs! 

When I started making them I couldn't decide which illustration I preferred so I showed her both designs and together we've gone for the larger wreath with the more delicate chicken drawing inside.

Happy Easter!

Oh but my darling… What if you fly?

And so it starts again..!

It's been around two years and in that time I have a new design role, a new home and i've married my army man. It's crazy how life flies by and you don't have the time to carry on with blogging, etsy, instagram etc. but i'm making a choice to start again and to try and document everything. 

I'm very excited to show what i've been up to!

Wood Block Prints

I LOVE the first print and seeing how your hard working carving (be it lino or wood carving) has turned out! I've started with a simple repeat pattern and judged by eye how far apart to leave the leave, this was made easier by comparing the two patterns side by side. In a dull moment one of my prints will be used for my next project and will be printed on material and used to cover and upholster a chair..! Very exciting!

New Logo Design

I've been working on a new project to design a logo for a childrens nursery, the brief was to design a logo which painted the scene of a countryside setting with horses nearby.

The front door is a lovely duck egg blue which led the beginning of the design, using a similar colour for the leaves and the heart - the window detailing on the house even uses a small hint of green to complete the design.

I created this by drawing and painting a few elements and then enhancing these digitally - the house is a mixture of both, but the horses and flowers show a definite hand drawn detail.

I'm happy to say that the logo was well loved and has been used throughout the marketing for the new business! Hurrah! Click here to see the final logo and all the small details which add a personal touch to the website..

Woodcarving classes

I've been learning how to carve intricate patterns and 3D shapes in Lime Wood, time seems to fly at these woodcarving classes.

Looking forward to seeing the result of the leaf wood block print!

Riitta Ikonen - Mixed Media Envelopes

This is an amazing project! Riitta Ikonen sent around 100 postcards from a few different countries (England, Japan, Finland, Russia and Spain). The project focuses on using mixed media and almost tests the postal service to see what is allowed! Only two out of the 100 did not arrive.
